In brief: Terbinafine
If you are certain that you have "ring worm", these are fungal infections that are primarily due to dermatophytes called t.
Rubrum. I find that otc terbinafine cream has better coverage for t. Rubrum than clotrimazole, which is best against yeast.

In brief: Clotrimazole crm
Use Clotrimazole cream twice a day for at least 2 weeks after it is gone.
If it is not getting better after a week of this, check with your doctor.
